The telegraph chittered away as the sun set over the city, the Adhan echoing off the white-washed walls of Tehran.

Author’s Note

Welcome to A Microdose of Fiction, a series of genre fiction micro-stories that offer you an exclusive glimpse into expansive worlds. Every week, new installments and stand-alone adventures, all under 101 words, will transport you to far-flung worlds. I hope that these stories will provide entertainment while you eat your toast, and start your day on an adventurous note.

Make sure to check out the most recent releases of the current series, The Final Expedition and the Twilight of Ares, which will be pinned to my profile, and prepare to embark on a journey of imagination in bite-sized portions. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures to come!

Life has taken a hectic turn over the last few weeks, and these may be a little sporadic in the coming weeks. I always want to ensure they're getting the proper amount of TLC.

I’ll be keeping these stories in the fiction community for now, but am already working on the next series which I’m debating moving over to Chapters. More to come.
